The 110 meter long tanker-barge Palandiel collided with the 110 meter long self-propelled barge Eleonora on the Rhine River near Wiesbaden-Biebrich, Germany. The two vessels were proceeding in dense fog when they struck head-on. Both vessels suffered damage to each bow, but no water ingress. Both vessels were proceeding in ballast only and there was no pollution released. No injuries reported. The water police has started an investigation into the incident. Both vessels were equipped with radar so the cause of the collision has yet to be determined.
